Salim from Kenya on Today
This photo was Salim today. We didn’t take this photo - a six year old did and she was trying to capture a photo of her mom, only Salim kept photo-bombing the photos she was taking! He was enjoying himself today as he waited for his surgery tomorrow. When he wasn’t trying to be in a photo, he was probably trying to take the photo! This boy is fun, and we’ll enjoy introducing you to him more as the week progresses.

Cyprian Carl from Kenya on Today
Ciprian is really growing fast. We know this because today he needed new braces and that’s what he got. He also has a new haircut, and we absolutely love it. We will see him next in August when he comes for brace review!

Fidelis from Kenya on Today
Somebody had a balloon in the ward this morning, and Fidelis was happy about that because he got to play with it! We’re still getting to know this guy, so that means we’re still learning his personality. So far, he seems a little shy but he’s got a fabulous smile that we’ll hopefully be sharing with you for the rest of his time with us. Because of his condition, he’s in need of an amputation. As necessary as it might be, the truth about amputations is that they’re not easy. A small part of you is taken away and that takes some time to adjust to. Please pray for Fidelis as he processes this!

Ivy from Kenya on Jul 12, 2018
When we asked Ivy where her balloons were this morning, she told us, “It’s in the bag.” Which seemed kind of funny considering the bag she was referring to was mom’s purse and it kind of didn’t seem big enough for balloons. Ivy then proceeded to pull out two deflated balloons and blow them up, then let the air out. Free entertainment! We gave Ivy a hug from someone who’d sent her a get well message, and we let her take photos on our camera. As we were saying goodbye, her mom told her to tell us ‘thank you!’ And what did Ivy say? “Thank you Jesus Christ!” Amen to that because it is Jesus who brought Ivy to us and who is healing her right now! Thank him with us for both of these things!

Catherine from Kenya on Jul 11, 2018
Catherine and her grandma must be feeling like us at CURE Kenya are part of their family now because they have to keep coming to see us! BUT, it is all in pursuit of the best medical care for our girl. She came back for the results of the tests they did on her knee, and she also had blood work done. We’re not crystal clear on exactly what her infection was or is, but for now, she’ll hang tight for a bit. She was seen by our physios in hopes that maybe she would gain more movement in her knee, but was advised to move her knee only if she’s able. We don’t want to force her knee to do something that would hurt her! We’ll see her again in a month. Please pray for healing for her!

Lucy from Kenya on Jul 11, 2018
Lucy sat, holding a baby this morning while waiting in clinic. The baby had also come for clinic. Although Lucy is busy growing up and becoming an adult, it would be so fun to see her in ten or twenty years when she has her own little one! Along with Lucy’s growing up and becoming an adult, she’s also busy healing! She’s making progress according to her x-ray. She worked with our physio team, and she might also eventually have a shoe raise to help her leg that’s been operated on be the same length as her other leg. We’ll catch her at mobile clinic on October 2nd and hopefully find out more then!

Quinter from Kenya on Jul 11, 2018
Quinter was around CURE Kenya today for clinic, but we were unaware until we saw her file and by then, she’d already been seen by the doc and had left! Her family was concerned because Quinter has a bit of a limp when she’s moving quickly, but the doctor assured them that this is part of the healing process. Hopefully the limp will vanish eventually, although because of Quinter’s injury, she’ll probably need a hip replacement when she’s older. Thankfully, it’ll hopefully be lots of years down the road. She also experiences occasional pain, mostly when she’s trying to stand. Please pray that Quinter’s limp goes away and that she lives pain free! We’ll see her next in October.

Trevor from Kenya on Jul 11, 2018
“He made a promise today: no crying!” Trevor’s mama told us today, and he almost kept that promise. But then his cast was being taken off and something was stuck to his skin and got pulled and a few tears just couldn’t help but slip out. Trevor had such wonderful joy today, and his face lit up a lot! We’re glad our boy was happy. He got another cast put on but pretty soon, he’ll be measured for his orthotics. Thanks for continuing to shower him with your love through his get wells (insert heart emoji here). We’ll see our boy in a few weeks again for an orthotic measurement.

Cynthia from Kenya on Jul 11, 2018
Somebody has lost a tooth and it’s not us! Any guesses on who it is? YES!!! You guessed it! It’s our pretty little friend who came to pick up her orthotic today. She got her cast off, had to cry a few tears in the process, but then it was all worth it because she got her new orthotic and will see us again in September at mobile clinic. Please pray for smooth sailing for the rest of Cynthia’s treatment journey and for lots more lost teeth because it shows our girl is GROWING!

Ivy from Kenya on Jul 11, 2018
“You are fun!” we told Ivy this morning and how did Ivy reply? With a very enthusiastic “YES!” We had been having a blast letting Ivy identify colors in her world around her. And when we read her and her mama Ivy’s get well messages, her mom would tell Ivy to say ‘amen’ and eventually, she gave us a very enthusiastic one! Kiddos often get a balloon while visiting CURE, but somehow, Ivy managed to get herself not one, but TWO balloons! Maybe it’s because she is so enthusiastically fun! As she heals, please pray that nothing squashes her fun and that after a dressing change, she’ll take her enthusiastic fun home with her!

When a surgeon is doing surgery, functionality and practicality seem to be things that they’re looking to achieve. This was the case yesterday for Ivy. When we’re wounded, scars often remain. When all is said and done, Ivy’s hand won’t look quite like her other one. There will be scars. Some of her fingers won’t bend like the others. But what she will be able to do is... hold onto things, like her bicycle handle. Wave at people, like her friends. And hold people’s hands, like her younger sister or her mother. And for that we are grateful. Pray for Ivy as she continues to heal!

Alice the OT visited Ivy’s bed as she waited for her surgery and subsequent bicycle. Alice came to measure Ivy’s right hand for a splint that will be put on her left hand after her surgery. Ivy was super lively this morning despite the fact that her surgery was today! Please pray that God will watch over Ivy’s entire healing process so that her hand is restored as much as possible!

Maryanne from Kenya on Jul 09, 2018
Friday's hope turned into Saturday's reality for Maryanne! She left the hospital and doesn't have to come back until August 15th for a cast change! Thank Jesus with us for this and pray she heals fast and strong.

Collins from Kenya on Jul 06, 2018
Collins and his grandma left CURE Kenya very early this morning! We learned that they were supposed to leave yesterday but the time wasn’t in their favor and they would have a hard time finding means to travel. So they opted to sleep here and leave very early today. We are happy that finally Collins can go home and we will see them again at clinic soon!

Maryanne from Kenya on Jul 06, 2018
Today Maryanne was moving her wheelchair inside the hospital with no help at all from anyone. She was buzzing around all morning like a cute little bee, less concerned about what everyone else was doing around her. She went to the playroom for a little while and had a good time in there. We pray that Maryanne and her mum can finally go home and as it stands, it is very likely that they could go tomorrow! We showed these two lovely ladies Maryanne’s profile on our website and Maryanne had fun remembering where the photos were taken and what she was doing then. Maureen, Maryanne's mum told us, “I have started forgetting how my little girl looked when we first came to CURE because now her legs look straight!” Such statements are made possible by you very kind people who are praying for our kiddos and contributing in your own ways to help them!

Why I Support CURE

Chris is excited to join CURE for the same reason most of us are part of it: Seeing the Kingdom of God at work in kids lives. "Kids right now who can't walk, they're being carried, who can't go outside because their faces look different… they get to be kids again. Because of CURE… because of you and me and everyone else involved, kids will be kids again, and be able to walk and run.
